I agree with this! In my experience it's more of a function of cylinder pressures/hone abradability? with regard to engine break in. It's possible to achieve sub optimal sealing if babied for too long before the hone glazes over. With that said, full break in could take anywhere between 300 and 20,000miles.

I go to many seminars from the engine manufactures and they all say they run the new engines very hard before the public ever sees them
